So I get a call from my cousin in Michigan asking if my neice(brother's daughter) died. I said no she's alive and healthy of course. He called me because he found his facebook and something wasnt right, for one my brother doesnt have a facebook(wife does though). So I check it out, turns out this guy out of WV has been posting pictures of my brother and his family as himself the whole time, and posted up a couple years ago that she died in a car accident. The whole thing is completely strange and I've never wanted to strangle the sh*t out of anyone so much in my life.

I havent told my brother or anyone else in the family yet as it would freak them the hell out, they dont know how crazy the internet can be.

Here's the dude's facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ryan.casto.75

Any suggestions on what action I should take next. I plan on notifying facebook to hopefully delete the account, but by any chance would you think most of his info posted up is correct. Quite a bit that matches up.

I thought about calling his work and asking about that name, but that's a shot in the dark that it's his real name. If he had been from WV it would be different as everyone up there is Casto.

Just curious for opinions on this one. Question

Wow very strange. And its been up for years?? That goes beyond a practical joke. I would contact facebook to determine who this guy is and where hes posting from. I would probably tell my brother too... chances are its somebody close to him if they have access to his personal info and photos.

Nothing to be found at all other than that facebook account and pictures. Otherwise I see no links to it, or from it in any way. Doesnt seem he tried to make any money off it. just weird. I would love to find out the guy's real info, it's real close to where my grandparents lived in WV(if the info is somewhat correct again).

Wow that's freaky. I'd maybe try contacting his friends, see how they "got to know" him. And inform the police, you never know what may come out of this.

A kid I went to high school with started posting on FB that he had like stage 3 lung cancer and not much time to live. He said his goodbyes to everyone on there for like a week and then deleted his account. I asked my sister about it since she is good friends with his sister. Apparently he is alive and doing well.... may be a similar type thing to your deal.

That's kinda scary, especially with a little kid involved. I would proceed with caution and tell your brother about the situation asap.

I dont know what could spawn someone to do that kinda crap. Attention grabbing whores maybe. Could have been something else that was deleted off the facebook wall, who knows. Gonna report it to get it taken off, but I really wish I know at least who they were who did it...

Yes but FB won't tell you probably. They will tell the police.

Actually, I would report this to your local PD. Most are now capable of working with Fbook to shut this down.
